The pad of friction material that is pressed against the disc by the caliper, to slow or stop a vehicle. It is also a term often used for brake lining. Often enough your Rotors and pads become work and need either replacing or machining. Ask one of our specialists to inspect at your next service.
Disc-shaped component that revolves with hub and wheel. The lining pads are forced against the rotor to provide a friction surface for the brake system, to slow or stop a vehicle.
Brake fluid is a key element in getting your vehicle to slow down or stop. The brake system is a hydraulic system that is highly pressurized. That pressure is made to increase considerably, enough to stop your car. When the brake pedal is pressed down, the brake fluid enters the pistons in the brake calipers and cylinder at each wheel. The pressure is increased sending the fluid into motion, signaling to the brake pads to press down onto the rotors attached to the wheel to stop rotation. When a vehicle is out of brake fluid, the system is unable to create pressure which is extremely dangerous as it may prevent the vehicle from stopping all together.
You can think of your exhaust system as the ‘lungs’ of your car. They work to expel the gases that run inside your engine.

FAQ's

What is meant by service brake?

Service brakes are the usual foot-operated brakes that are used during driving. Contrarily, the parking brakes or emergency brakes are used to lock the transmission for a sudden halting of the car during an emergency and during parking.

When should brake pads be replaced?

Brake pads are the main parts of brake systems that are pushed against the brake discs by hydraulically actuated callipers to reduce the speed and bring the vehicle to a halt. Hence, brake pad replacement is usually the first thing in brake service and is done when the brakes are slower, they make a squealing or grinding noise when brakes are applied, the brake warning light is on, burning smell due to metal to metal friction, or when you have a hard, low and spongy braking experience.
